While workplace injuries have many consequences, some can be especially challenging if they take away your ability to continue working. If you are dealing with an injury, you may be facing all sorts of hurdles, from physical pain and medical expenses to lost wages and concerns about your future. At Kampf, Schiavone & Associates, we are well aware of how devastating and prevalent workplace injuries are in San Bernardino, and the rest of California.
If you are unable to work for a year or longer due to a medical problem, you and some of your loved ones may be able to receive disability benefits from Social Security, according to the agency’s website. If you meet certain conditions, you may be able to apply for SSD online. For example, you must be unable to work as a result of a medical issue that is believed to last for more than one year, not be receiving any Social Security benefits, not have been turned down in the past 60 days and be at least 18 years old.
After applying for disability benefits, many people have been denied. If you have been rejected after applying for SSD, you may feel a sense of hopelessness or be unsure of how you will move forward. Whether your application was rejected or you are unsure of whether or not to apply for SSD, it is pivotal to carefully review the details of your situation.
